SANTA BARBARA COUNTY – An emergency slope repair project on State Route 154 at Postmile 16 just north of Camp Tequepis Road will result in a one-way traffic control operation next week.

This 24/7 flagging operation will begin on Monday, July 10 at 8 am and is expected to last until Thursday, July 13 at 4 pm. This will allow crews to complete slope failure repairs from the January winter storms including the removal and replacement of the westbound lane.
